to ask members to elect him for another two-year term despite what was a poor showing on election night for the gop. bobby jindal, the louisiana governor, laid out a number of areas where things have to change. it was blunt, listen. >> we have to stop looking backwards. we must reject identity politics. we have to stop insulting the intelligence of voters. >> senator mel martinez, former senator from florida, also a former rnc chairman, nice to have you senator, thank you for being with us. >> good to be with you, good morning. >> give me a sense, i appreciate that. there's a website requesting feedback and recommendations. walk me through how that will go and what kinds of feedback and how you take that and turn that into some real change. >> well i think first of all of a great reassessment taking place within the party and i think it's very healthy. i thought the governor's speech last night was very much on point but i think the entire tenor of this meet something one in which we're taking a deep look inside and i think that's a terrific thing to do. i'm quite encouraged not o

to sort out mitt romney's loss in the election. a debate, some conservatives don't want a new immigration policy that allows those who came illegally to stay. some democrats don't want to touch medicare, social security. if you have a grand bargain who is the circuit breaker so everybody can talk together and things get done as opposed to confrontation? >> well, and this is the time to do it. there are big things that need to be done for the country with regard to immigration. immigration is the backbone of the country. that's what your country is built on. legal immigration. we have to move forward with immigration reform, marco rubio. >> senator, forgive me for interrupting, but as we move forward on immigration, your words, are you prepared, and do you think a majority of republicans are prepared, to give some legal status, whether full citizenship or legal status, to the full 8 million people here in this country illegally? >> this is something that needs to be discussed and debating. we have been debating it and discussing within our policy lunches. marco rubio is raising

review board report just happened to land after the election. so they were playing election politics, no doubt about it. listen -- >> senator, you're playing politics too because one of the things you said, you said to buzz feed, i think she just decided before she was going to describe emotionally the four dead americans, that's when she was really choking up, the heroes and used that as her trump card to get out of the questions. it was a good way of getting out of really having to respond to me and then the other question i point out where you said -- when she said she didn't want to interfere in the process, you said, well, that's a good excuse. so it sounds to me like you're saying, a lot of that was just faked. >> well, i was responding to a question maybe i shouldn't. i agree with secretary clinton we need to understand what happened so we can prevent it in the future. but again, we do need to get to the bottom of what actually happened. what is the truth of the matter here. did the administration mislead us? i absolutely believe they did. that's for the american people to und

react to the second term? steve king is a member of the tea party caucus. the president won an election that many say he shouldn't have won given the sluggish recovery. he beat your party. democrats beat a bit more in the senate. do you feel republicans need to change in the second obama term? >> i think a few of them are, john, and i'm certainly not. those of us who won an election, we see our constituents as deserving the best representation we can give them. we won elections too. this is an interesting day today, this peaceful transfer, a constitutional way of the power and vision by our founding fathers, and they understood the separation of powers. they knew there was going to be a clash in the confrontation and a struggle between the parties, but we also know we have to run this government. it's going to be interesting as this unfolds. this should be a healing day. then tomorrow morning, we can start that harder work you mentioned. >> reporter: let's talk about the harder work. some of it divides your party internally. other parts divide his party internally. there's been a talk t

speeches will be memorable. the first because he is the first african-american elected. he used language interesting to me. that we owe a lot to our founding documents. he referred a lot to the founding documents, not a lot to the founding documents. the founding fathers owned slaves. >> a process ever since. let's play a little bit about what he said. i think the constant looking back to the constitution was a very strong theme in his speech yesterday. let's play that. >> we hold these truths to be self-evident. that all men are creating equal. that they are endowed by their creator with certainly unalienable rights, and among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. >> and with that, he sort of launched into not an olive branch, he launched into here is the preparation for the fight ahead for the next four years. is that how you saw it? >> i saw it almost a campaign speech for 2014. we need congress, need to get this thing done, yeah. i saw it that way. and very interesting. the republicans and democrats are both in this death embrace. they each have their own constituent
